Cheating has been a central point of sports from early beginnings – athletes always look for ways to push the boundaries in order to be the best at their sport. What happens, however, when external factors impact the final results of games?
A former Antigonish resident is doing his Masters research on exactly that; NBA scorekeepers have a bias when submitting results after games. Matthew van Bommel believes many NBA scorekeepers have a bias when observing a game:
van Bommel says that most teams hire scorekeepers for each arena, meaning that box scores such as triple doubles are often given out to players too often, mainly because of bias. His research on this topic has been published and he continues to look more into the bias that exists in the NBA

The Mabel Arsenault Memorial-Subway high school girls basketball tournament starts Friday.  The Dr. JH Gillis Royals, the host team,  are the returning champs.  Brianna Gotschall is one of the returning players.  Gotschall’s sister helped pave the way for her.

Coach Gail Mac Dougall says the tournament honours someone who played an integral role in the development of the local basketball community.

The tournament starts at 2 Friday as the Royals welcome Halifax.
